If you’re giving your family the gift of a new custom swimming pool this Christmas, here area few things to think about!

The fall and winter months are the ideal time for anyone to both plan and then have the construction done for their pool, though unless you take the right considerations into account, you may end up with a pool that you won’t enjoy as much as you should.  To make sure that you end up with the right pool for you and your family, here’s are 4 points to consider when designing your pool:


1. Are There Lines And Cables In The Way?

When thinking about where you’ll be placing your pool, you need to consider if there are any number of issues that may prevent you being able to build it in that area, including:

  • Electrical wires
  • Telephone wires
  • Sewer and septic lines
  • Buried pipes

2. Is It Accessible?

The harder you make it for yourself and guests to make it from point “A” to point “B”, the less likely they’ll be to make it to that destination.  If you want your pool to get a lot of traffic, then make sure that it’s easily accessible.  This means keeping it close to the patio, building proper, safe walkways and/or installing decks so that you and your friends and family will be able to quickly and easily take a dip whenever the urge strikes them.

3. Is there Appropriate Drainage?

Most expert pool builders will be able to provide the appropriate level of drainage for your pool depending on where you live and what sort of ground you’re working with.  It’s still a good idea to ask about how the drainage will work in your preferred location for the pool, especially if you live in an area that’s prone to flooding.

4. Is There Space For Add-Ons?

In the future, you may very well want that diving board, that waterfall, or that rock grotto.  If these items are in your dreams, then make sure that the pool is constructed in a space that will allow for them.
